I bought myself a few gifts. Gifts to help promote health and fitness. You see, I’ve gained .. 10 lbs! Yikes! I’d love to say, oh, how did that happen? I’m so good about nutrition. I exercised!
The truth is:
I eat well, but feel that I need all these ‘treats’ because I ate well.
I do a bit of yoga in the evening, but haven’t lifted weights in months.
I was doing the couch to 5k app, but found excuse after excuse not to run once it got hard.
So there you go. All the above equals a 10 lb. weight gain.
To get back my enthusiasm for fitness, I decided to get a few new workout items. I was in need of new athletic shoes so found these gray, green, purple Saucony sneakers at DSW. I can always tell when I need new athletic shoes because once you wear the new pair and then try on the old pair, the old pair seem really flat and not springy like the new pair.
I also picked up a colorful t-shirt at Kohl’s and to my surprise, picked up a great fitting pair of exercise pants at Costco, of all places. The boot cut pants come in three sizes (small, medium, large) AND three lengths (short, medium, tall). I purchased size large, short length and they are perfect – ready to go no need to hem ( yes, I even hem my exercise pants ). Now I’m ready to get motivated and back to working out.
